Every morning of this trip we start our day with reciting the “Prayer of St. Patrick”. This beautiful prayer is a commitment and a hope that Christ would be evident in every part of our lives and our day. It is the prayer that the song “Christ Be All Around Me” is based on. And throughout this week it has been amazing to see how our students have taken that prayer to heart and have been used by God to be examples of Christ’s love and attitude of service.
Today we once again worked at LifeCare Alliance. We delivered food to people’s homes, collected groceries for cancer patients, worked in the cafe serving hot food, and wrapped silverware for their catering business (this catering business helps keep their lights on as each year they get less and less grant money).
In the evening we worshipped with the Mount Vernon First Church of the Nazarene’s youth group, “Catalyst”. It was such a cool experience joining with their youth group and hearing some teaching from Pastor Brian on ways to share the gospel that actually works. The highlight was getting to see Caitie who was our summer intern last year.
